Supernatural horror maybe the kind of thing that keeps us awake out of utter fear of sleep paralysis, but we can’t help but appreciating the haunting beauty and execution of this here motion comic promoting the subsequent arrival of the horror film Woman In Black 2: Angel Of Death in January 1st 2015.
Hammer released a short narrated tale about Jennet Humfrye and Alice Drablow and the origins of the creepy woman in the permanent funeral attire. While the aesthetics of the piece was well done, it really didn’t need that talking head of narrator Jeremy Irvine at the beginning. We get it, he starred in the first film as Harry. At least have him be more mysterious, opening a book or something. Takes away from the power of the motion comic imagery. They could have taken a few lessons from Showtime’s Dexter Motion Comic series.
